Billie Eilish has officially been announced as the writer and performer of the new James Bond theme song for No Time To Die.

Yesterday (13 January), Eilish was linked to the No Time To Die theme song via James Bond blog MI6-HQ.

This afternoon (14 January), Eilish has confirmed that she is behind the theme song for the 25th Bond movie, making her the youngest artist to take on a James Bond theme song.

She wrote the theme for No Time To Die with her brother FINNEAS. Speaking about being involved with the latest Bond film, Eilish says, "It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way. To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honor. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock."

Her brother FINNEAS adds, "Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been dreaming about doing our entire lives. There is no more iconic pairing of music and cinema than the likes of Goldfinger and Live and Let Die. We feel so so lucky to play a small role in such a legendary franchise, long live 007."

Hans Zimmer will be composing the score for No Time To Die.

The last Bond theme was Sam Smith's Spectre theme song "Writing's On The Wall" in 2015. Adele did the Skyfall theme song back in 2012.

The new James Bond film No Time To Die is expected to arrive in UK cinemas on 2 April.
